||Ten months old|
||North New Jersey, USA|
is Indy, he is a quirky little fellow. His nickname is Peanut because
he's got a big butt - even for a chinchilla - and he looks just like a peanut
to us. He loves to "wall surf" by hopping high on the wall and "popcorning"
around his room when he has free playtime. He is a gorgeous heterozygous beige
Chinchilla who enjoys his dust baths three times a week.
He does have his peculiarities. Sometimes we'll find him sniffing shoes that
were left on the floor and then rolling around on them! We haven't figured
that one out. During the day, he is very lazy and likes sleeping inside his
wooden house or cuddling with his cagemate, Liv or a cuddle buddy stuffed
animal we have for him. He sometimes pretends he is a parrot and jumps on my
back so he can sit on my shoulder and watch tv with me! We've had him for
about six months now and he has been a great addition to our little furry
family, we hope you enjoy him as much as we do!
Tis picture is him being a lazy bum, which happens a lot. He likes to pretend
he's tough and push anything that's in front of him out of his way. He'll go
into his cage and go on every level pushing off anything he thinks is in the
wrong place ;) Sometimes we'll play a game with him where we'll close the cage
door slightly while he is out for playtime and he is smart enough to use his
teeth to pull it open! He's really an intelligent little guy. Sometimes he'll
also go behind my dresser and try to push himself up against the wall so he
can get to the top! He's silly. His favorite treat is his shredded wheat
squares which he gets once a day, but he also really loves dried papaya! He
sure is quirky and keeps us laughing all the time, which is why we love him so
